Have you developed Parkinson's disease after long-term treatment with Lithium (lithium carbonate)?

Posted 14 Jun 2011 by jhalf 4 answers

There appears to be an association between the long-term (2 years +) use of Lithium and Parkinsonism (some symptoms of PD but not PD). I took Lithium for a bi-polar disorder for over 20 years and developed full-blown PD. Is this just co-incidence?
